Benefits in a Time of Uncertainty

Many years ago, I studied human resources (then called industrial relations) at the University of Minnesota.

From that and years in the employee benefits profession, I have a strong understanding of the complex decision process for an employer when developing a benefits plan – especially a larger employer with a diverse employee population. While I do not spend an excessive amount of time appreciating the benefits offered by my own employers, I appreciate having options for medical, dental and other insurance coverages. One size does not fit all when it comes to employee benefits.
